Great jazz, lot of noire, superb visuals... no plot
16 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

1930s. Chaz (Gabriel Mann) owns a hip jazz bar called The Tower - all the clichés are there with ensemble bands and sexy divas headlining the locale. Unfortunately for Chaz the big opening is rife with problems. The power company can't cope with constant outages, his father just committed suicide and debts keep piling up with loan sharks out for their cut. Enter jazz, noire, visuals. And a overly ordinary, uninteresting and forgettable Izabella Miko as the key character of Madelaine.

Basically every scene is heavily stylised (maybe even overcooked in that department) and overflowing with cool collected musical moods. Add to that the constantly floating camera, pretty ladies and high regard for set-pieces - you have a feast for the eye and the ear. Unfortunately that's as far as the movie goes to please it's audience. All the stuff that is normally movie filler comes to the forefront, while the script and plot seems secondary and irrelevant (and some of the dialogue is plain corny). Almost like a 90-minute videoclip... And let's face it - most videoclips start getting boring after 4 minutes...

If you like the music you might prefer to omit the 'plot filler' and focus on the background flow of all that jazz and blues. Even more so that Toledo Diamond really steals the show...
